18 & Graduated

If you should know something about me, it's that I LOVE e-cards. They are some of my most favorite things in the world. And the name of this post was inspired by it!
So... There you have it. And now on to the purpose of this post. 


 Yup! I am now 18 years of age. Only took me 18 years to get here.... Oh wait... Uhh... Anyways... So in celebration of my birth, I threw myself a party. If you're ever looking for a great birthday party idea, I would recommend having a glow-in-the-dark party. Because everyone loves glow sticks and everyone gets excited over the idea of black lights. It's quite simple, actually. Whether you would like to do it inside or outside would entirely depend on the person and how much they want to work. I had a friend who had a glow-in-the-dark party. And she moved ALL of her furniture outside her house to make room for speakers and a dance floor. She put up black lights all around her house and everyone had glow sticks. There was food and music and it was so rad. It was the inspiration for my party, actually. But my house has a lot of furniture, so that wasn't really an option for me. So I moved the party outside.  It was really easy setting up. I just put a few black lights around the walls in my backyard, replaced flood lights with black light bulbs, and had bought glow-in-the-dark spray paint from Wal*Mart. I bought some glows sticks and asked others to volunteer to bring some for themselves and/or to share. Needless to say, it was a success. People came and left, people came and never left. But it was wicked awesome, nonetheless. But yeah... Umm... This picture down here is just a little bit of what happened. I spray painted that "18" all by myself. And I got black butcher paper and spray painted "Happy Birthday" and used it as a giant birthday card for people to sign. And I know that people always say that their friends are the best. And yes, I'm sure they're fabulous. But seriously... I HAVE THE GREATEST FRIENDS EVER. DON'T EVEN CHALLENGE ME. That's all. Happy birthday to me!
(That's me on the far right.) 

P.S. If you were wondering, my birthday is August 14th.
